As We See It. Amazon Prime. A delightful, funny, real, and poignant look into the world of living with autism. The 3 main characters are actors who are actually on the spectrum and it takes you through their lives living independently in an apartment. The cast is incredible. I binged it in a day and look forward to another season.

Currently Writing:

When Wren Came Out is at 33% written, and I am very happy with how the characters are developing. I am also 5% into the writing of my next travel memoir. I'm making the plans and have a killer cover idea. It's still top secret until after the trip, so I don't influence the direction it takes, but it is incredible to finally have a follow-up book to "Scotland with a Stranger." And Noah, one of readers favorite characters is making another appearance.

P.S. If you've read one of my books, can you help a struggling new author out? Reviews are gold and help me reach more people. Please take a minute and tell me (and other readers) what you thought. You can review on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, KOBO, and Apple Books or at any other bookseller. It's even better if you copy and paste the review to multiple places. More reviews=More visibility. You can write as much or as little as you want and I would be forever in your debt.
